Diego Schwartzman, made semi final of French open tennis.
He named after Maradonna.

Great sportsman, or cheat.
What you think?

What cheating in sport do you remember?
Have you ever cheated in sport?
What sport you play, or played?

I don't think I've seen Schwartzman play. I'm not even familiar with the name.

Thinking. Can't remember any cheating in sport, well apart from anabolic steroids.

I've never cheated in sport, I think it would be difficult to do. Played county tennis, once upon a time. Lacrosse. Netball. Oh and skiing. Quite like sport.

As in life in general.....Sadly cheating exists in sport......Gladly it is usually dealt with when detected.....apart from the Hand of God......

Sadly again...the cheats try to find more sophisticated ways......Lance Armstrong cheated for years....and was never caught.....till he got caught.....and his world came down.......He thought he was always one step ahead.....

As well as steroids.....there are all sorts of cheats going on......There was even the Spanish Paralympic basketball team...They won Gold medal at the 2000 paralympics......then .they got disqualified for cheating.......They weren't disabled......
